Has anyone played New Star GP? I've always loved their soccer games, and after watching some videos, this reminds me of a pole position with a career mode and it looks fairly deep.

It has great reviews as well.
looks like there is a demo version on xb. i will try it. thanks.

Downloaded the demo and I'm hooked. I'm not a huge racing game fan, but this is fun to play and the career mode is addicting.

I finally purchased an Xbox Series X last fall to coincide with Forza Motorsport. Unfortunately, I have barely played that game for many reasons, but I have been very happy with EA WRC on the Series X as my aging PC can't really handle it. Anyway, I just realized as I was trying to install MLB The Show 24 that I am already out of space and that is with only 7 games installed! (EA WRC, Forza Motorsport, Forza Horizon 5, F1 23, Assetto Corsa Competizione, NBA 2K24, and PGA Tour). What is the best/cheapest option for expanding capacity without sacrificing performance. I have external drives still for both my original Xbox One and Xbox One X, but my understanding is that you cannot play games from external drives with the Series X. Is there a way to just back them up so if I decided to remove lets say NBA 2K24, I don't have to redownload it when I went to play it again? Thanks!

you can play nba2k24 on xcloud if you do offline modes or offline myteam. I never played it online on xcloud. The forza games are on xcloud too if you want to save space. I think you may have to uninstall the game though for the cloud option to appear on your xbox. Not sure.

the only option is the seagate or WD storage. 1TB still is around $150. which is a rip off. I got mine on sale last year for like $90. Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 is now like 600GB with 3 years of updates and add on's. The new one coming out later this year is going to be just as big or bigger. That game on cloud isn't as nice as installed. So I just keep it on. If I erased it and thought about reinstalling I think the entire download would take like 24 hours.

Play in the cloud. Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon 5 are in the cloud with GamePass, and I think NBA 2K24 is, too. Deleting those three games will save you nearly 350 GB on your drive -- almost half your available space.

Yes, cloud-based gaming tops out at 1080p, which is a bummer. But I'll take a slight degradation in visual quality to save space instead of paying at least $100 for a solid-state drive.

Cloud gaming was ropey as f*ck around Christmas, as I think a lot of people got GamePass subs and played in the cloud, and MS didn't have proper server capacity. Ten- to 15-minute waits to get into some popular games were common.

Now, I get into any game on the cloud in less than a minute, and everything runs flawlessly.

Thanks for the tip, I may have to try and give cloud gaming another go then. I initially tried both Forza Motorsport, Forza Horizon 5 and MS Flight Simulator in the cloud and it was very poor performance and constant disconnects and waits and restarting. Truth be told, my internet is not great so that could also be the issue. AT+T is finally bringing a fiber option to my neighborhood so I may have to try that out when available.

I have a WD BLACK 2TB P10 Game Drive external USB drive connected to my Series X for additional game storage. It seems to go for about $80 now on Amazon, and they have different sizes, I think up to 8TB. You can’t play native Series X games off it, and it can’t do Quick Resume for non-Series X games you run off it, but moving games to and from the internal SSD takes a lot less time than downloading them, and non Series X games can run off it just fine.

Or, you can pony up for an NVMe SSD expansion card, such as the WD BLACK 1TB C50 Expansion Card, which seem to run about $130 now at Amazon, or a Seagate or some other brand. I think they run as big as 2TB. These NVMe SSDs will act just the same as the internal SSD, including allowing Quick Resume for games running on it and allowing you to run native Series X games from it. I think that originally Xbox only allowed Seagate to produce these NVMe expansion cards, but they’ve since relaxed those restrictions and prices seem to have come down.

Assassins Creed Mirage is better than I expected. Some of the reviews were luke warm. Its on sale for $29.99. I’ve been wanting a nice SP game on the Xbox since finishing CP 2077, which is one of the best SP games ever. I played the 2 hour free trial of ACM and pulled the trigger on the full game. Not regretting it so far.

If you’re in the Microsoft ecosystem then absolutely. I’ve got an S and an X, use both daily. Well my son has the S in his room now, but I use the X for sure. Absolutely a fantastic system.

X marks your spot, dude. Very worth it if you're in Microsoft ecosystem, as DB said. Never have regretted buying mine, and I don't spend money on anything besides wired audiophile headphones.

Personally, I wouldn't purchase a Xbox at this time. Hardware sales have been abysmal.

Can you explain your logic? So he shouldn't buy an Xbox because sales have been bad? The entire gaming market has been pretty bad, and the world economy as a whole has been bad...that doesn't mean you stop buying stuff you enjoy.

I guess if he's solely going to be playing College Football 25, then you'll have the same experience as you would on the PS5. I agree the MS hardware is excellent and I've never had any issues with it. Future wise, I'm not too confident in the future of the Xbox. Doesn't seem they really have a strong strategic strategy going forward. A lot of their games are going to appear on other consoles. They also haven't put out any real must have games this generation, and they've closed down quite a few studios. For me, it just gives me pause, but as stated above, you'll be fine for the foreseeable future.

if youre on a budget and only buying a console for CFB25 then go with Series S. Most bang for your buck. On reddit someone was posting there may be a Series S bundle with CFB25 when the game gets released. Or to check if Costco has a deal with the game packaged in.

Im def going to get it on XBOX X first. I just like the controller for football games over PS5.

Considering todays Xbox showcase and the announcements of a digital only XB1X and the announcement of already working on the next generation and the lineup of titles announced I'm not sure the future is as dismals as some make it out to be.

It's not, and all those who were preaching the doom and gloom a few months ago can go back in their holes now.

Yeah, I am very encouraged. Gaming has been a bit flat of late (for me at least). This showcase was better than expected. Things look to be kicking in the rest of the year.
